About Matthew

I am a registered therapeutic counsellor (RTC) with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT), having completed my three-year training in transpersonal counselling psychology at the Clearmind International Institute in Vancouver, BC. 

I weave together a unique combination of training and life-experience into my practice of counselling psychology: over 20 years of Zen Buddhist meditation practice, Buddhist Psychology, and Mindfulness; Certified NVC Trainer with the Center for Nonviolent Communication; Systemic Constellations Facilitator; and Wilderness Rites of Passage Facilitator.

Having personally traveled the terrain of the 'dark night of the soul,' and also witnessed firsthand miraculous transformations of hundreds of people, I can attest to the capacity of the human soul to transform traumatic losses, transitions, or crises into a sense of greater peace, clarity, and empowerment, when met with presence, empathy, and unconditional acceptance.

I am particularly-passionate about working with parents, young-adults, and social/environmental activists because these pivotal life-stages and roles have such profound effects on our collective future. I truly believe our personal transformation and healing transforms the world, bringing about more peace and justice for all beings.
